  •  If the choice for Christie had come down to (5+ / 0-)

    calling a special election or appointing a Republican to fill the final 18 months of Lautenberg's term (and you know that's what it would have come down to), I'll take the special election.

    Hypocritical for him to say "I don't care" about the $24 million price tag for the special election (or $12 million if you concede the need for a primary), yes, especially considering the cuts he's made in education, transportation and social programs, and the tax cuts he's enacted for the moneyed interests in NJ, but even so, I'd choose the special election and his hypocrisy over another Republican senator.

    Also, with this decision he's severely pissed off Dick Armey.  That has to count for extra points.

    "In this world of sin and sorrow there is always something to be thankful for; as for me, I rejoice that I am not a Republican." - H. L. Mencken
